Our best choice of candidate to fill the recently vacated position on the Peninsula School District’s board of directors is clearly Leslie Harbaugh. I watched her in action during the district’s levy campaigns. No one was more knowledgeable of the issues involved nor more tenacious in encouraging voters to support our schools.
Despite the levy/bond failure, because many constituents failed to vote, Harbaugh never wavered in her dedication to fight the good fight for our kids.
She stimulates positive approaches to the issues and is not one to complain about the problem but rather one who seeks answers beneficial to the schools in our district. Never wavering, she has continued over the years to provide collaborative volunteer leadership in our schools and makes sure she knows what she supports before committing to the appropriate tasks of making our schools better.
She regularly attends school board meetings and is never hesitant to pose well-researched questions when deemed necessary.
She is open minded and anxious to explore all paths to the solutions to our district’s issues. She will be a fine, dedicated, hard-working, no-nonsense member of our school board. We need her.
